Lunney Family of Maine – Mayflower Pedigree


The following pedigree provides the lineal descent for the Lunney Family of Easton and Westfield, Maine from four of the passengers on the good ship “Mayflower” when it landed at Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1620.  The Mayflower Pilgrims and their fellow travelers were authors of the first true governing document created in a New World colony. The Mayflower Compact is considered to have set the stage for the Constitution of the United States.

Hello Jennifer,

I know very little about Rita Lunney Benjamin.  Dad can't remember much about her - she was 22 years older than him.  I never heard that she had a twin named Lois - is that true?  That would make 3 sets of twins. I thought that Irma was Rita's daughter.  Please send me whatever you have about Rita.
